Optimizing RayWare Performance - NVIDIA

RayWare requires large amounts of processing power for some operations. If you're using a computer with a dedicated graphics card we can allow RayWare to use both your computers processor (CPU) and the graphics card processor (GPU). 

Graphics cards are purpose built to handle 3D Graphics and applications, these are things that your CPU can have a hard time with as it was designed to run your operating system first and other functions secondarily. Most Windows computers are going to run RayWare off of your CPU by default, so its really important that we make some minor changes in your NVIDIA Control Panel to offload RayWare's 3D graphics processing to your NVIDIA GPU so that we don't have to worry about slowdowns and crashes that can come from using your CPU. 

Follow these steps to transfer Rayware's processing to your GPU
